Welcome from the Chair

            It is with pleasure that I welcome you to the Psychology Department web page of Long Island University’s Brooklyn campus. Our department offers three programs of academic study.  We offer an undergraduate program leading to the B.A., and two graduate degree programs: an M.A. in Psychology and a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology (APA accredited program). Our excellent faculty bring substantial clinical and research experience to the department and are committed to teaching and mentoring student research.

          The department has several research labs that are actively engaged in psychological research. The Intercultural Institute on Human Development and Aging, under the direction of Dr. Carol Magai, Dean of Research, is also affiliated with the department and focuses on psychological issues related to ethnicity and health.

          Located in downtown Brooklyn, just over the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges, LIU provides access to a wealth of ethnic diversity, as well as all of the substantial cultural, scientific, medical and academic assets found in New York City. It provides an excellent location, as well as outstanding educational opportunities.

          I hope you will enjoy learning more about our department in these pages. Should you have any further questions after perusing our website, please feel free to contact our department or pay us a visit.
